On the coast, the Hillcrest/Mission Hills and Little Italy offices combined forces to hold a Halloween potluck in late October to practice for the big Thanksgiving event. The table and all bellies in the room were full of delightful fare provided by members of the two offices.
On December 18th, the La Mesa Village office will be holding a Client Appreciation Holiday Party from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. All Windermere agents and staff, along with clients, friends, and family, will get together to celebrate the holidays and toast to the end of a great 2014. Agents and Branch Manager Carey Guthrie will be supplying festive holiday food for the party. In addition, each agent will be decking out their cubicle for a decorating competition decided by all in attendance.
Managing Broker Kirk Gregor is bringing out the fun side of the season by hosting an “ugly sweater” themed holiday party, encouraging all partygoers to don their ugliest holiday apparel. The festivities, planned for December 19th, include unfashionably fashionable sweater statements by attendees and a white elephant gift exchange.
In the Coachella Valley, the Palm Desert San Pablo office held a well-attended and supplied Thanksgiving potluck. A bounty of treats and dishes were spread across a festive table that featured a beautiful display of seasonal décor. HoneyBaked Hams were provided to take the affair over the top and were a huge hit with all attendees.
The La Quinta office is holding a catered office party December 19th. Agents and staff are going to bring in baked goods for a cookie exchange and will take part in “fun, games, and prizes.”
In addition to office potlucks, Windermere agents, managing brokers, and staff were heavily involved in the Harvest Auction, an annual fundraiser put on by the Palm Springs Regional Association of Realtors (PSRAR). Auctioned items included gift baskets and desserts, as well as a raffle for two Community Treasure Chests. Through the auctioned items and raffle tickets, the event raised $13,000 for four local charities, a wonderful way to give back to the community during the holidays and enjoy handcrafted holiday treats.
